Question / Help Display Capture Error


New Member

If I setup the graphic settings to "System default" or "High performance", I can see the image to be recorded, but it does not allow me to record.

Error: "Starting the output failed. Please check the log for details. Note: If you are using the NVENC or AMD encoders, make sure your video drivers are up to date.

If I setup the graphic settings to "Power saving" I get the black screen but it allows me to record, but it is black.

Upgrade your Nvidia driver.

GPU 0 is your Intel GPU. You can't run NVENC on an Intel GPU.

You might be able to force this by setting the encoder to use GPU 1, but you might end up with a PCI bottleneck doing that. Try it.
